associations, merchant groups, churches, nonprofit organizations, city officials, and first responders. the task of this local coordinating council was to figure out how do we deal with that first 72 hours and how do we recover? and we've learned an awful lot as we've developed these relationships and how do we avoid the mistakes that were made after hurricane katrina? but what we've also found is that by simply convening these groups, we are preparing ourselves not just for what happens after a disaster, but we are literally building our community today. with this coordinating council, we're figuring out how to fix the potholes, how to deal with the literally million people who are going to descend on our neighborhood this weekend, how to take care of the needs that we have, not just in the future after the big one, but today in 2012. and by bringing us together today, by tackling and talking about the problems we'll deal with tomorrow, we're actually achieving many things here at this moment in october. and, so, i want to ask you to think about how it is that you can help us to build

than the boardwalk at seaside heights and atlantic city, which you may know, the nation's first boardwalk, the birth of the boardwalk in atlantic city when years ago the folks who owned the train cars and hotel along the beach got tired of people tracking sand into the hotels and train cars, let's put a boardwalk there so people's feet will be clean when they get into the hotels and rail cars. that's a piece of history there as this one is here. it will come back. cheryl: one of the things tough to see in new jersey, jeff, so many residents stuck. i know the national guard on the ground yesterday trying to get people out of the homes and in the shelters. is that effort still continuing today, or are pretty much residents evacuated now? >> we just saw at the other end of the island folks going house to house, fire department going house to house. there's people out here. hey, jimmy, spin back around, quickly as you can, we'll leave them with a shot of folks on bicycles. a lot of people, you know, they can't get the cars out. people traverse on bicycle, and that's what ewe see --
in new jersey. we know that that's where sandy first made landfall in atlantic city. and much of the boardwalk there was submerged. water was thigh high on the streets of seabright, new jersey. that's a three mile sliver of a town that is where the shrewsbury river joins the ocean. then earlier tonight, i spoke with brian thompson with our nbc affiliate wnbc in new york. he has been reporting from seaside heights, new jersey, tonight. >> reporter: i'm cold, i'm miserable and it doesn't look very good at all, chris. i can tell you that just a couple miles away here on the jersey shore, 13 homes burned down in one little cluster, a shopping center, strip mall burned in berkeley township a couple miles behind me. we have a lot of power lines that are starting to, look right here, these are getting a lot closer. they're starting to drop right there toward us which is not a good sign. we have reports of four deaths right now in new jersey. i don't know if you've reported that earlier, chris, or not. two people in a car accident in morris county. a tree falling into a house in passa
new york city, at new york university medical center these are the first pictures we were just showing you. where a power outage forced the evacuation of critical care patients. let's go to nbc news correspondent rehema ellis who's there now. what is the latest from there, rehe rehema? >> reporter: the evacuation is continuing, chris. as you point out, 215 patients, some pediatric patients and critical care patients who had to be evacuated when the backup generator fail. we're on 29th street and 1st avenue. everything from here on down has been in the dark for many hours tonight as a result of the storm. we understand there was a transformer fire at a con edison station in lower manhattan which could have knocked everybody out of power. it's important to point out there has been no chaos, no panic. it has been a very orderly transfer of patients here from the nyu university medical center. they also had intermittent telephone service and they've been letting people know that they have not been able to contact the loved ones of these patients as they're leaving. but they're leaving that
. what are we going to get for it? what do we get out of it? the first responders, we have cities out here that are -- they didn't get the federal help, god forbid, something like that happened out here, we would be just lost. >> bill: look, we don't have so much of the hurricane problem in california but we have the earthquakes and how many times -- i remember how many earthquakes have we been through in northern california and southern california, i have, what's the first thing the governor does or the cities do. they turn to fema for help. for emergency responders that they're able to bring in from other states. first responders. and then for the rebuilding effort. for the protection against them. disaster relief, you would think that everybody would understand that disaster relief -- okay, maybe you don't really like a big federal government but there is a role for the federal government in disaster relief. the fact that mitt romney doesn't see that to me shows how -- just how shortsighted he is. what a captive of th
storm sandy. we are also getting new tape in, this is feeding in now, wtvi out of atlantic city. first aerials of the boardwalk, of course the famous boardwalk, sections that were washed away. you can see the boats that are just tossed about there, the homes are right there on the water. and just remnants of what the boardwalk used to be, as it just goes out into the water. 11,000 people spend the night in red cross shelters in that area. but this is one of the first aerials that we're seeing from the famous boardwalk out of atlantic city. ali velshi was in atlantic city last night and it was extraordinary to see just how quickly the water had risen and when he was doing those reports, got up one point to his waist. it really was a city that, for the most part, people hunkered down. he did not see a lot of people out on the streets. it was pretty much abandoned. in the light of day, you're just beginning to get a sense of the damage and devastation that that atlantic city area has experienced, particularly the boardwalk area, and the commercial area that was abandoned last night. for t
at seaside heights. simon hobbs is in for sue herera today. >>> but first, to the aftermath of the storm and president obama's visit to the new jersey coastline. kayla tausche is live in atlantic city. kayla? >> reporter: hi, tyler. we just saw air force one fly right over us and headed likely toward the atlantic city airport. we have tons of residents in atlantic city who turned out very excited, very rambunctious to seat president. it is the first day of sun after days of wind and rain and of course the wreckage of sandy here is evident as a place that used to be home to more of a residential part of the boardwalk. residents would fish off of it and stroll here. not so much the business part of the boardwalk but the wreckage you're seeing here, nonetheless. here in atlantic city the cleanup is just in its early, early stages. some residents who chose to stay behind getting power. i spoke to one resident today who finally got power, got a pump to his basement and started trying to pump out water that had flooded his basement. he was moved to tears when he started talking about watching
there in your city? >> well, i think the first thing that we need to do is to get power restored as quickly as we can. you know, there's an old saying that pictures are better than words. and for the president to come to atlantic city, i am most appreciative. he will see for himself the devastation that has been wrecked on this city by sandy. but i'm happy to say that although the loss in terms of property is catastrophic, on the human side the loss was very minimal. not to diminish the loss of one life that we had, but there has been no real serious injury to our residents. we did have one fatality. and so on the human side, i think we came through this as best as we could hope. certainly we would like to have preserved all life, but we did unfortunately lose one. but again, on the property side, catastrophic damage. on the human side, very minimal, so i'll very thankful for that. >> seeing things very important but the actions of the people of atlantic city restoring power more important. what is the timeline, sir, that you think that people will get power? >> as we speak, crews are out a
a couple hundred people still in their homes on the bay side of the city. the governor said it's a situation they will have to monitor and first thing in the morning at first light respond to and try to get those people out. not far from here just a couple blocks, one of the city's last resort shelters a guard unit went in there and pulled those people out and took them to atlantic city high school. so the shelters that were kept if place drawing criticism. chris christie's statement was there shouldn't have been shelters open here on the island. the winds are still coming ashore here. and we really won't know what kind of damage has taken place inside the city proper. i'm chris kato reporting for wcau. >> what he was explaining was cutting out of some of the time because we have a live shot in the middle of the storm about the controversy over those shelters. the the contrast is between the wishes of the local mayor and the wishes of the governor. governor chris christie saying there should not have been any sheltering in place on site in atlantic city that everybody should ha

hours since the damaged crane first started dangling 90 stories in new york city. these are live pictures you are looking at. we have obtained this video showing yesterday's collapse at the construction site of the luxury 157 skyscraper as it's called. she has got more of what's going to on. what do we know about the safety record of this crane that seems to be hanging there? >> it is hanging precariously. directly behind me and it's about a thousand feet off the ground. you can imagine how terrified people on the ground were. having said that, cnn has learned that this very construction site has experienced some problems in the past. the city issued at least two stop work orders in the past couple of months. one for leaking hydraulic fluid and another for defective wire rope and an improper runway platform. they were eventually fully rescinded but it took about a week in each case for that to happen. they did confirm that the documents are correct. >> what did you think when you heard the loud boom? >> i thought it was a gunshot or a bomb. i immediately went to the window. when
with jim axelrod in new york city. >> reporter: the first thing we can report on this tuesday morning is that high tide has come here in battery park lower manhattan, and the water out there, the hudson river, new york harbor where it's mixing has not reached the wall has not come over. and that was a big concern here for emergency management officials as the next high tide after hurricane sandy had made landfall. the big concern was whether or not there would be another breach. there has not been this morning. as i say, good news. why? that water, having come over last night, record storm surge of nearly 14 feet. that is what caused the bulk of the problems in manhattan. there are about a quarter million people without power in manhattan. why? because that water came over the wall and got into electrical substations and power stations and knocked out service. so all of new york island south of 34th street is without power right now. the subway systems in new york are flooded out. they could take as much as a week to be back online. it could take as much as a wee
is going up in a helicopter and we're going to get our first pictures here this afternoon. we've had reports from point pleasant beach where the beach was essentially taken and spread through the town and then we've heard from atlantic city and seen where the boardwalk was ripped up and so forth. in the middle is long beach island and i haven't seen any reports from long beach island. what happened there is they were on the side of the storm where the water was pushed from the ocean in across the shoreline. farther south, down into maryland and delaware, much of the coast where they had some damage, they didn't have that hard push of water at high tide like good parts of the jersey shore did. so we're very, very fearful there and also on the south shore of long island. we also haven't seen that. so there is much more to learn about just those two areas let alone other areas spread around the northeast. >> and as you point out, the high winds, continuing high winds, and gusts are going to make it even that much longer before we get power restored to all of those people. >> that's righ
live here are new york city firefighters and first responders. people who have done so much to help so many over so much time, where helpless to save their own homes as they burned down on monday night. there's still pockets of smoldering fire in all of this wreckage behind me. just a few moments ago, a fire engine was just pulled up over here, wading again through floodwaters, trying to put out some of those fires. if you look over my shoulder here, george and amy, straight there is the ocean. that's the atlantic ocean. usually there would be rows and rows, blocks and blocks of homes. this morning, a straight shot to the ocean. people vowed to come back here. but looking at the destruction, it's hard to believe that's going to happen anytime soon. >> a landscape has been changed completely. >>> one of the most heart-stopping events of the storm, the emergency evacuation of a major downtown hospital in manhattan, including newborns from a critical care unit. david muir has more on the heroes who got everyone out safe and sound. so many stories from that night. >> reporter: they really
. keith russell news 4. >> we're going to toss to a break right now. first, ocean city maryland, where again the waves are crashing out there. looks like there's someone on the beach maybe enjoying the pictures. trying to document this tremendous storm. >>> now, parts of lower manhattan, where the seawall there has already been topped by waves. you're looking at one of the ships there that is sort of out into the water, if you will. we know oftentimes, those ships are safer being away from the shore. >> we know the holland tunnel and brooklyn tunnel will close at 2:00 p.m. this afternoon. holland tunnel, brooklyn battery tunnel. jurisdictions up and down the east coast not taking any chances, making sure they are ready and don't cause any more problems by having these thoroughfares open for people who might be trying to drive. >> there are reports about significant street flooding in parts of the bronx and queens as well. the subway system shut down in subway city because of the concern about water coming down into the subways as well. >> tom kieran now with the latest. >> sandy has ta
of washington, d.c., when hoover first came in, the city council decided to say they were boring to pass along a law banning hoovers because it would disrupt the traditionalists taxi system. it was sort of a clash between old and new, and in the end, the innuendo -- the new ended up winning out. but there are people with a stake in preserving the status quo. we need leaders who are willing to embrace technology and embrace the future in the name of jobs, in the name of a lot of other areas around procurement. >> as the last academic, i think i should say that one of the strongest defenders of the status quo is academia. since we are here at wayne state in an academic institution, i think it would be useful to pick up on the point, to look at how our graduate degree structures intersect with the need of the non-academic labor market. right now, our graduate programs are focused on producing people with ph these for the academic labor market, -- ph.d.'s for the academic labor market, which is not expanding rapidly, if at all. yet you have companies looking for highly educated people they say the
did not mince words at all. >>> but first, residents of a new york city apartment building were settling in for a quiet evening when suddenly they heard what they described as blood-curdling screams. >> those screams turned out to be a young mom returning home to find what can only be described as an utterly horrific scene. wabc's report has the details. >> reporter: 5:30 p.m., horror on the city's upper westside. [ sirens blaring ] in the middle of the evening rush, a frantic dash to save lives and to figure out what happened in this luxury apartment building on west 75th street. >> i just saw people rushing to the streets right here and, you know, personnel coming, people, and i thought maybe it was like something exciting going on. >> reporter: it was murder on the second floor in an apartment. a woman comes home to find two of her children murdered in a bathtub, the nanny on the floor, a kitchen knife nearby. >> a mother returned with her 3-year-old child from swimming lessons. she enters her apartment. the apartment is dark, a time when she goes looking for her children, an
. i am ordering that all the city's public schools be closed on monday. first, as to the evacuation zone. let me stress we are ordering this evacuation for the caste of 375,000 people who live in these areas. if you live in these area, you should should leave them this afternoon. low-lying area, zone "a," including coney island, manhattan beach and red hook and otheriars in brooklyn. all of the rockaways and hamilton beach special broad channel in queens, almost all the coastal areas of staten island, city ooh land, throtion throtion -- throgs neck and battery park city and stretches of the waterfront and the lower east side and manhattan. do you want to find out if you live in zone "a"? call 311 or go to the city's web site and type in your address or give your address on the operator. they will tell you. if you live in one of the 26 public housing developments in zone "a," be aware that all elevators there will shut down at 7:00 p.m. tonight. so if really is important that you leave... this afternoon. also, the mta has announced they will start shutting down service to subways at
, and washington, d.c. flood waters along the new york city coastline made it difficult for first responders to reach a massive six-alarm fire which began overnight in queens. in new york alone, nearly 2 million people are without power. con edison intentionally, actually, had to cut power to tens of thousands of folks in order to try to protect equipment from rising water. then there was an explosion at a substation in manhattan, that caused -- that was caused by flooding, flying debris knocked out power to another 250,000 people. also last night, a backup power system failed at nyu medical center and that forced the evacuation of all 215 patients to nearby hospitals. that's everything we think we know right now. now, coastal flooding, destructive winds, heavy rain actually will continue as sandy heads inland. let's get the very latest on the storm's path. we go to the man, to the iron man for us lately, nbc news meteorologist bill karins. where does sandy stand now? what's going to be affected? and where is it heading? >> sandy is going to be more than anything else a nuisance today. peopl
. when i was a city councilman in lyndhurst, ohio, i introduced the first property-tax rollback in the history of our city. we give tax relief to senior citizens and working families. i worked in a bipartisan fashion -- and we reconstructed the oversight to the workers' compensation investment fund. i worked in a bipartisan way to pass down the budget and try to keep young people in ohio. identified the exports with ohio and worked in a bipartisan way to manage the finances in the state of ohio where we have the highest rating on our bonds and investment and voluntarily cut our budget two years in a row. >> i would emphasize that he voted with his own party -- he voted with them 96% of the time. the only time he doesn't is if the interest group does not have a better offer. he voted against his leadership to satisfy the pay lenders and raised a lot of money. there is nothing in his elektra -- in his electoral records that would show that he ever stands up to his political party on anything significant. >> is there one big area of disagreement you have with mitt romney, mandel? >
of first responders. >> reporter: tens of millions impacted from the carolinas to canada and to the great lakes. atlantic city, new jersey, is virtually shut down in anticipation of a direct hit. >> i'm really, really worried because they just told a friend of mine they think it's going to hit the bay. the bay and the ocean will come together. >> reporter: utility workers are standing by to reap pair, expected massive, widespread power outages. >> it may take a long time not only to clear but also to get, for example, the power companies back in. >> reporter: sandy is wreaking havoc here in ocean city, maryland. the heavy rain and wind has forced the maryland governor to cancel early voting scheduled for today. back to you, rob, paula. >> tahman, try to stay dry out there. our extreme weather team, of course, has been working through the night to pinpoint sandy's expected path. >> accuweather.com meteorologist jim dickey is joining us this morning with the very latest. good morning, jim. >> reporter: good morning, rob and paula. well, again, this is a massive storm system. looking at the
that we have ever experienced. our first responders have been doing a heroic job protecting our city and saving lives and they are still fighting fires and con ukt doing life-saving search and rescue migs and we owe them an enormous debt of gratitude. the storm brought something like 23 serious fires to parts of staten island, brooklyn, queens as well as city island in the bronx. the terrible fire on breezy point is now ununder control, but we believe we lost more than 80 houses. the search and recovery operations there are ongoing. if any of you saw the pictures on television is looked look a forest fire out in the midwest. the winds were just deaf statinstatin devastating and blowing from one building to the next one. we are hoping and praying that there was no loss of life in those fires, but even we can -- even if we can save any lives, many people have lost their homes and they have our full support in the days and weeks ahead. the 76 shelters we opened will remain open today and we will continue to keep shelters open until people displaced by the storm can safely return to thei
